Samba in Debian Edu

Samba is now configured as standalone server with modern SMB2/SMB3 support and usershares enabled, see /etc/samba/smb-debian-edu.conf on the main server. This way non-admin users are enabled to provide shares.

For site specific changes, copy /usr/share/debian-edu-config/ to the /etc/samba directory. The settings in will override those contained in smb-debian-edu.conf.

Please note:

Accessing files via Samba

Connections to a user's home directory and to additional site specific shares (if configured) are possible for devices running Linux, Android, macOS, iOS, iPadOS, Chrome OS or Windows. For example, Android based devices require a file manager with SMB2/SMB3 support, also known as LAN access. X-plore or Total Commander with LAN plugin might be a good choice.

Use \\tjener\<username> or smb://tjener/<username> to access the home directory.
